A Writer, But No Desk

Ever since Cynthia Lord wrote about her cute little writing house and her desk on Jan. 8, I've had severe desk envy!

As I don't have one, I promised myself that if I am ever lucky enough to find someone interested in my novel, I will buy a desk for myself. Every now and then, I'd look online for desks. When my favorite ex-sister-in-law and I went furniture shopping for her new house, I looked at desks. I measured them, I sat at them, I trailed my hand across their surfaces while strolling by in the showroom. They were too expensive or too tall. (I'm very short.)

Today for Valentine's Day, this was my gift: My hubby wrote in my card that he would build me a custom desk in honor of my completing my first novel. How sweet is that? Not only is he a great cook, who fixed me a gourmet meal tonight, but an expert finish carpenter who has mad woodworking skills. He's buying the wood tomorrow and starting to build it next weekend!

**smiling broadly**

Happy Valentine's Day -
From the woman who's getting a desk

Oh that is the best Valentine's Day present! You will love having a new desk--mine makes me so happy.

I thought it was so sweet, too. I figured I'd have to wait years until selling my first book. Think how productive I'll be! haha

Smiling broadly with you. I've deserted my desk for the couch. Go figure.

That's funny :)
I wonder if you crave the people or the comfiness?
